is suggesting what we call the earned entitlements like payroll taxes for medicare and social security are putting you in a taker category. no one suggests that whatsoever. >> jon: when you were saying takers you don't mean sweet old grams you mean hobo joe. i got it. but here is the thing: back in 2011 congressman paul ryan was pretty specific about how he defined taker. according to the tax foundation between 60% and 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government than they pay back in taxes. we're getting to a society where we have a net majority of takers versus makers. >> jon: you are defining taker as as 70% of society. that's (bleep) takers. imagine how high that percentage would be if he included social security and medicare recipients on the taker list. you don't have to imagine it because it wouldn't be higher because it includes it on the taker list, social security and medicare according to the tax foundation report sighted by a paul reya, sorry ryan. if you don't include social security and medicare on the takers list you can't get to romney's more generous

the high speed computer trades. >> is there any downside to a tax? >> yeah, if you're a hedge fund manager or one of the high-speed traders, you're going to have to pay some tax and it's going to discourage you from making bets that distort the market. for the rest of us, i don't see a downside, ed. >> how would we make a determination? because you know they would come back and say oh, this is really going to hurt the economy. how would this hurt the economy? >> i don't see how discouraging speculation, which is almost all done with borrowed money. they effectively borrow money at a rate of 30 to 1. you put 3% down and borrow the rest of the money. i don't see how this hurts the economy. and if we reduce this volatility and reduce market distortion, we can get back to having a market focused on investments that create production in the future and wealth in the future, not creaming the market today through speculation. >> quickly, you think this is something congress could embrace? >> not probably in this congress in the house, but i think this is an idea. it's been around for 80 ye

wouldn't see 42 republicans vote for a tax increase in the fiscal cliff deal, we wouldn't have seen the republican party back off attaching a debt limit vote to severe spending cuts. they were feeling the heat of public opinion and to some extent of lead opinion, wall street opinion and corporate opinion and so forth on these matters. public opinion does make a difference. supports bomb on guns by and large. supports obama on revenues i think ultimately public opinion will make a difference. >> john: and they support on filibuster reform as well. i hope harry reid can hear you. michael tomasky always a pleasure to have you. you made me feel a little better. you really did. i didn't think it was possible. >> that's why i'm here. >> john: the one and only michael tomasky. thank you for coming on again. >> thanks a lot. >> the right wing has a new word word, fascism. unfortunately they think it >> john: stay speaker of the house john boehner said, quote wants to annihilate the g.o.p. okay, let's looook at some of the annihilateing annihilation barack obama was open to the idea of outl

problem. and the president wants to increase taxes to continue the spending. >> these democrats are going to spend us right into bankruptcy. they're not serious about getting things under control and stopping the spending. >> the white house is so unserious about cutting spending. >> none of that is true. i mean, to the extent that true means attached to facts. here is spending under bush. here is spending under clinton. here is how spending has dropped under president obama. these guys were not mad about george w. bush's big spike in spending, buzz they have decided to get really mad at the guy who is fixing that, and that anger is weird enough on its own terms. it's weird enough that this republican analysis of this problem is so divorced from reality. but what today's news reminded us is it's not just the analysis that is weird, it's also the purpose of the analysis, what they are using this cockamamy backwards analysis to justify that is really deeply strange. for decades, raising the debt ceiling was something that congress has been willing to do. since the presidency of fdr, congres
